Notice of Preparation: Brodiaea Commerce Center
For immediate release: December 5, 2017
The Notice of Preparation (NOP), stating that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) will be prepared, was distributed to the State of California Office of Planning and Research and responsible and trustee agencies on November 13, 2017. The public review period for the NOP will end on January 5, 2018. During the public review period, public agencies, interested organizations, and individuals are asked to comment on the proposed project to identify any environmental issues they believe should be particularly addressed in the preparation of the Draft EIR.
About the project
The Project proposes the development of a 262,000-square foot (s.f.) warehouse facility on the 11.8 acre subject property. The proposed facility would contain approximately 252,398 s.f. of warehouse space and 10,000 s.f. of office space. The Project also includes site improvements, such as storm water detention basin, ornamental landscaping, and utility infrastructure. In addition to the application for the EIR, applications filed with the City for the project include a Plot Plan (PEN17-0143) and Change of Zone (PEN17-0144). The proposed Change of Zone would amend the City of Moreno Valley Zoning Atlas to change the zoning designation for the project site from “Business Park” to “Light Industrial.” The “Light Industrial” zoning designation allows light manufacturing, light industrial, research and development, warehousing and distribution and multitenant industrial uses, as well as certain supporting administrative and professional offices and commercial uses on a limited basis. In addition, the portion of the project site immediately adjacent to Alessandro Boulevard, which is presently zoned for “Business Park- Mixed Use with an overlay of Mixed Use Neighborhood” will be more precisely defined with regard to shape and size.
